About the event

Camden has a Black history that not everyone knows about. Come and hear Shirley Fortune give the breakdown of the area's Black history.

Bloomsbury - now the medical and educational centre of London. Famous for its charming garden squares and elegant Georgian houses. But there is also an African/Caribbean history here with 'black fingerprints' running through its heart - if you know where to look!

On this tour we hear, among other things, about:

  • The railway worker who overturned a whites-only recruitment policy
  • One of the first Black women in higher education
  • The first known Black British editor
  • One of the UK's first civil rights group
  • Pride and Prejudice within the British Museum 

Led by Shirley Fortune, a fully qualified guide, this walk will take you around the Camden area looking at its history from a different angle.
